Pizza Inn, Inc., an international pizza chain recognized for serving a variety of fresh and popular traditional and specialty pizzas, has opened its largest U.S. restaurant in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, at 1473 Hunter Hill Road.
The new location set a company record for the biggest opening in Pizza Inn history with a sales increase of more than 60 percent in the first two weeks of opening.
"We are thrilled with the new location and the response from the local community," says Steve Stancil, local franchisee. "These numbers are new territory for Pizza Inn and will help to move our brand to even greater heights."
Stancil joined Pizza Inn in 1974 and became a franchisee in 1985.
A city street widening project prompted the Rocky Mount restaurant to relocate across the parking lot. The new 9,000 square-foot restaurant seats 324 and features Pizza Inn's new back-fed pizza buffet, large salad bar, and upgraded interiors.
"Steve has done an incredible job, turning a challenge into a huge opportunity and posting record sales for the entire Pizza Inn chain at the same time," says Charlie Morrison, president and CEO of Pizza Inn. "The response from loyal customers in Rocky Mount has been fantastic."
The new restaurant is open 10:30 a.m. to 11 pm, seven days a week and available by phone at (252) 937-2323.
